Santi Cazorla’s Nightmare Injury and Arsenal’s Brilliant Contract Gesture

Santi Cazorla has recently revealed the regret he feels for not being able to leave Arsenal with a proper sound-off to his fans, and that he received a special contract gesture from long-time manager, Arsene Wenger. The 33-year-old became part of Villarreal during the summer months after a long, two-year battle where he saw very little real play-time thanks to a series of injuries.

Over the last few months, the Spaniard was forced to endure a number of surgeries in the hope that he’d be back on the field in full form, despite the many times he was told that time on the football pitch was most likely never going to happen again.

Should Arsenal just pay however much Aaron Ramsey asks for?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan hopes Aaron Ramsey ends all speculation on his future here at Arsenal, and becomes a real club legend.

As we all know and have read on a daily basis, Ramsey is no closer to signing a new contract with the club than he was a few months ago when negotiations started.

Nobody knows the full details about the kind of deal Ramsey has been asking for, but it has been rumoured he wants the same kind of deal which Ozil managed to get out of us last February when he literally waited until the very last minute to get a deal done.

Arsenal now have one of the deadliest strike forces in the world

Aubameyang not my rival Lacazette by Iomie

Alexandre Lacazette is ready to form a deadly partnership here at the Emirates with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, after revealing he had no intention of leaving the club.

The Frenchman was brought to the Emirates by legendary boss Arsene Wenger last summer for a whopping £52 million after seeing Lacazette have the season of his career and net an impressive 36 goals in 39 games for Lyon.

He was expected to lead the club into a new era and become ‘the next Thierry Henry’, but despite a relatively decent start, the season wore on and Lacazette’s finishing become that of a Sunday League striker he simply couldn’t find the back of the net.

Barcelona speak out on Dembele to Arsenal rumours

The Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde, has put an end to speculation we could make a summer move for winger Ousmane Dembele, stating he remains a key component of his squad.

Signed for an jaw-dropping £135 million last summer as a replacement for Neymar, Dembele has failed to live up to expectations at the Camp Nou and failed to make any impact on the first team, partly due to his long list of injuries.

And that led to speculation we could swoop in and offer him an £88 million escape route, with Emery reportedly in the transfer market for a fast, direct winger that will take the defender on rather than stand-him up and pass it, thinking of a certain Alex Iwobi.

How David Ospina is exposing the ignorance of the Premier League millions

The World Cup, apparently the pinnacle of football achievement, can often prove to be quite a leveller when it is compared to the English game, and that is no more apparent than at Arsenal.

David Ospina will stand guard for Colombia against England, knowing that whatever heroics he pulls off will have little impact on his own future. The 29-year old signed for Arsene Wenger in 2014 for £3m but has never managed to force himself into the first team picture.

Lucas Torriera is Key to Xhaka’s Future with Arsenal

Granit Xhaka’s performance in the match against Brazil revealed why Lucas Torreira is fundamental to his future with Arsenal FC. The 25-year old player could well enjoy a new lease on life at Arsenal thanks to Torreira’s arrival. Of all the players that could be used as a reference point for how Unai Emery intends to reshape the midfield for Arsenal, Valon Behrami, from Switzerland, is not the most obvious choice. Yet, in the match against Brazil, the former utility man from Watford and West Ham provided a favour to Xhaka that should not be overlooked during the debate as to how to bring out the best in the 25-year old player at the Emirates and he certainly has the right mindset to go far.

The UK supports Rwanda and Rwanda supports Arsenal!

Rwanda Defends Its £30 Million Arsenal FC Spend

Rwanda does not see a problem with its Arsenal sponsorship that has the high-ranking English Football Club’s players taking to the field with Visit Rwanda emblazoned on their shirt sleeves for three years. The money is part of a budget for marketing, and was sourced from cash earned from tourism in the first place, says Kigali.

The deal, recently announced, has attracted a lot of criticism, mainly from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Detractors are asking why a country dependent on donors and troubled by high levels of poverty would be spending such an enormous amount of money.

Why Arsenal changed their mind about the Checkatrade Trophy

Arsenal Will Be Taking Part in the EFL Trophy

Arsenal Football club has accepted an invitation to take part in the EFL Trophy after rejecting the offer for two years. This will see their Under-21 side being joined by a quartet of other London-based Premier League clubs.

The Gunners have not taken advantage of invites over the past two seasons, but it is understood that discussions over the value the competition brings, which pits teams from Leagues One and Two against premier academies have been ongoing during this period.

Per Mertesacker Said Yes

Which Arsenal player will you support at the World Cup?

Ozil holding World CupAlthough there is the World Cup in Russia this summer, just for a change there are not many Arsenal players selected for the international squads, which may give the Gunners a good start for the beginning of next season but could make it a boring tournament for us in terms of seeing Arsenal players on the field.

So who will we see, and what are their chances of going all the way to the Final? I have just been looking at the prices to win the World Cup on and surprisingly Brazil are the 5/1 favourites. They usually are, but they may find the conditions in Russia a bit different to South America and in fact the last one was held in Brazil.
